WCHA issues suspension to NMU's Loughran

By  | 

BLOOMINGTON, Mn. The Western Collegiate Hockey Association Men’s League office today announced a one-game suspension for Northern Michigan sophomore forward Griffin Loughran, effective for the Wildcats’ next NCAA Division I contest.

The suspension is a result of a stick infraction by Loughran at 19:59 of the second overtime in Northern Michigan’s home playoff contest of Saturday, March 7 against Michigan Tech. Upon further review, the infraction was deemed to warrant a suspension.

Northern Michigan has completed its 2019-20 schedule. As a result, Loughran will sit out the Wildcats’ first NCAA Division I contest of the 2020-21 season. Loughran would be eligible to return for the Wildcats’ second NCAA Division I contest in 2020-21.
